If it's a community property state, then there was never any requirement to file as a partnership. Community property states are the exception to the rule that a sole proprietorship can only have a single "owner".

Huh, that's not what the links we posted say. To me they are saying that the husband/wife team can file a partnership return, without a formal partnership agreement, to be able to allocate the income so both can get SS credit. How would you separate the income for a sole proprietorship so that each "partner" gets credit for SS using a schedule C?
